It was snowy and cold today so Chuck and I decided to try a place that has been showing up here and there  as a good newcomer in St Louis, as it wasn't too far from our abode.

It's called Nora's and is located in Dogtown at 1136 Tamm Avenue.  If you are a soup, sandwich, salad lover this is the place for you.

It's in a small storefront building and seats about 25 people. There's a huge blackboard on one wall that lists all the goodies on the menu, and there's a lot. There's at least 15 different sandwiches, both hot and cold, and three vegetarian ones, a couple of soups, and four salads. Dessert consisted today of brownies, chocolate and blondies (sort of chocolate chip cookie cakes). They offer white, whole wheat or gluten free bread for their sandwiches.

Chuck had the Tomato Basil Soup and The Dip, which consisted of your choice of Angus roast beef or smoked turkey with melted provolone and au jus. It was served on a whole wheat hoagie roll, and he liked it a lot. It came with a choice of slaw, potato salad, or potato chips.

My choice was a sandwich called For Pete's Sake ( I couldn't resist, what a name! ). It had applewood smoked pork loin, caramelized onions, melted brie, bacon and apple sauce. Yep, you read right-applesauce. It too was served on a whole wheat hoagie roll and it was delicious.

Take a look at their website to see their extensive menu choices. There's bound to be one that you'll be anxious to try.
